"Les Coteaux is a 70% Syrah, 20% Grenache and 10% Mourvedre blend, from vines that average 20 years of age. The fruit comes from selected plots about halfway up the hillsides of the estate. The heat stored during the day on these gravely hillsides is released when evening comes, enabling an optimal maturity for the grapes. Vines in this well drained soil send roots deep in the earth to seek the nutrients they need, giving a rich and complex structure to the wine. Fermentation is in concrete vats and stainless steel, and a long maceration enables a harmonious tannic structure. Aging is for around 15 months in 1, 2, and 3 year old French Oak barrels." —importer

Wine Anthology review:
Les Coteaux is a red blend that takes after the style of the southern Rhône, mixing Grenache, Mourvèdre, and Syrah from the estate's Mas Belles Eaux vineyard above the Peyne river valley. This 2009 is a treat for the senses, featuring complex aromas that suggest lavender, incense, and cedar to add spice to the raspberry and ripe currant fruit. It is plush and smooth-textured with plenty of weight and intensity to keep things exciting, with great momentum that leads to a long, palate-coating finish.
"Effusively fruity and creamy, with well-defined flavors of red currant, wild plum and boysenberry that are matched with seductive notes of sandalwood. Blood orange and dark chocolate give this an added layer of intensity, with a refined finish. Drink now through 2018. 1,200 cases imported." —Kim Marcus, Wine Spectator
